QR Island - QR Codes

QR Island

QR Island is a free online tool to create QR codes.  Most QR code generators will create codes to URLs and/or text files.  QR Island does 2 things that the others don't.  
It allows you to upload image files to their server so you can create codes to images without having to host them somewhere yourself.  You can create a simple document/web page and then generate a QR code to it.  If you have a bunch of text, the "text-only" QR code becomes too complex and doesn't always scan properly.  Creating a document in QR Island is a great alternative.To get started:

1.  Go to
2.  Click "I want to make a QR code"
3.  Enter your information into the desired section.
